SHORT CUTS

Chicken is easy to judge — almost all cuts are lean or, in the case of the breast, extra lean. Beef cuts are not as easy to judge, and they're not marked as lean or extra lean. To make sure you're buying a cut that suits your lean diet, you really need to know your cuts. This table shows the macros for FLEX's favorite lean and extra lean cuts of beef (3-ounce portions, cooked).
